Azcom Network In a Box (NIB) supports mission critical workforce management system

Azcom Technology, a leading player in advanced wireless communication is planning to showcase its latest products and featured wireless solutions at the Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain between Feb 27th and March 2nd, 2017.

Mission critical operations, like public safety, involves the prevention of and protection from events that could endanger the safety of people from significant danger, injury/harm, or damage, such as crimes or disasters (natural or man-made). Public and Private safety organizations are mandated to deliver a certain level of service to society, performing Mission Critical Operations. Public safety services like reliable and fail-safe utilities and transport systems require broadband wireless networks to provide effective and time-critical services. Law enforcement officers, fire fighters and paramedics are in real need for high bandwidth, reliable mobile broadband infra structure and applications to maximize their service performance.

Azcom Technology provides all the key 4G mobile broadband infrastructure components and solutions essential to build a state-of-art deployable 4G mission critical network. This includes Network In a Box (NIB), Small Cells, C-RANs and Evolved Packet Core (EPC).

The Azcom AZN-IIF-2200 uses the latest generation multi-core SoCs to offer a powerful, flexible, compact, highly portable and cost effective solution with the option to use a pluggable card to run an EPC module that enables NIB capabilities. The product comes with a passive casing that is deployment ready with IP67 compliance. The AZN-IIF-2200 can be readily deployed for mission critical, public safety, defense, surveillance, remote coverage and other private applications.

“The Azcom NIB has the essential features to host and enable mission critical and public safety applications”, said Dr. Satish Ananthaiyer, EVP Business Development. “The NIB offers plug and play set-up that can enable critical services very quickly when needed”.

The Azcom physical layer and protocol stack software are fully integrated on the NIB platforms and end-to-end tested with commercial HSPA+ and LTE UEs. All major functional blocks of this solution are Azcom intellectual property and are licensable separately. This has significant value for customers with application specific requirements needing customization and/or development of additional features, particularly in defense, public safety and large utilities with private networks.
